A cancer patient is at the mercy of their disease. Their life is
bombarded every day with appointments, managing medications, tests,
chemotherapy, radiation and scans, not to mention their physical
and emotional disintegration. And this isn't evenconsidering the
financial end of things and dealing with insurance companies.
Enter Angie's Spa, named in memory of Angie Levy who tragically
lost her life to breast cancer in 2007 at the age of 27. It was
Angie's upbeat attitude and love for life's small indulgences that
inspired the idea of Angie's Spa. Angie felt so much better when
she looked her best. Even through chemotherapy, her nails and toes
were always "done" and her makeup was always "on." Knowing that
this spa will give that extra boost of self-esteem to other
patients would have made Angie extremely proud.
Angies's Spa provides free spa services for cancer patients
undergoing chemotherapy. Their first program is being hosted by the
Leavey Cancer Center at Northridge Medical Center in Northridge,
Calif. The hope is to start programs at other cancer facilities
throughout the country, to provide a silver lining on an otherwise
dark and cloudy chemo day.
